Trunk Music: A Harry Bosch Novel

Author: Michael Connelly
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks

Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch lands his first case: a Hollywood producer found in the trunk of his Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head. It looks like “trunk music,” a Mafia hit. The LAPD’s organized crime unit is oddly uninterested, but Harry thinks they’re wrong. He follows the money trail from the producer’s office to Las Vegas, where he quickly finds evidence of Mafia involvement. But something about the case doesn’t add up, and Harry follows a string of odd clues—glitter in the producer’s cuffs, an over-the-counter medication in the Rolls’s glovebox—in a different direction entirely. Just when Harry thinks he’s on firm ground, the bottom falls out. Blindsided again and again, at odds with his superiors, and overwhelmed by a romance that has cropped up in the middle of the case, Harry is as off balance as he’s ever been.


LAPD Homicide detective Bosch is back from an involuntary administrative leave just in time for the bodies to start turning up. When he finds hints of an mob hit but can’t interest the organized crime unit in the murder, Bosch has to take the investigation into his own hands in a this hard-boiled tale full of sharp turns. Fans of Michael Connelly’s excellent, The Poet, will go wild for this even better addition to the Harry Bosch series.

The murder of a Hollywood producer has all the signs of a Mafia hit, but something doesn’t add up. Battling impertinent superiors, disgraced LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch follows a string of odd clues until he uncovers a scheme many magnitudes more deadly than he’d imagined—with himself as the next target. Now Harry must prove himself not just by breaking the case, but surviving it. “Truly one of the year’s best entertainments.” Booklist.
